I purchase mine on amazon.

For example
big kids size 6 Newport h2 for $30.00.
Women's size 8 Newport h2 are $85.00.
This is exactly what I did. The color choices for the kids aren't quite as bland as for women, but I settled with a nice plum colored sandal and a grey winter hiking shoe.

I have owned Teva mary janes sandals in the past along with my Keen sandals. The Keens are the only sandals or shoes that I have ever owned that I can wear straight out of the box to WDW. I "broke them in" at home but they never needed it. I loved my Keen sandals so much, I bought a pair for my mom who also loves them.

(The Tevas were nice but eventually started rubbing. I only wear them short distances now)

I have had the same pair of keens since 2008. Yes I cringed at the price but they have lasted and I can still wear them. The soles are slowly wearing but not gone.

I wear them every day in summer/late spring.

FYI I didn't know about the big kids size....hmmm. Too bad they don't make a whisper slide in kids sizes.

Your best bet is to try them on. I have a friend who wears teva flip flops. She so is a new pair every year so I tried them on and I hated the strap around the big toe plus I felt like I had to force my toe in it. Other then that they were comfy.

I love the comfort of good old crocs.... but I hate the slippery soles on wet pavement.... that's what started me wearing the teva mush instead all summer...... (I still have all my old crocs,still great for camping,etc)
